Going with the flow means we are open to multiple ways of getting where we want to be.
Going with the flow doesn’t mean that we don’t know where we’re going; it means that we are open to multiple ways of getting there, that we are open to changing our destination, clinging more to the essence of our goal than to the particulars. We acknowledge that letting go and modifying our plans is part of the process.
Many of us are afraid of going with the flow because we don’t trust that we will get where we want to go if we do. This causes us to cling to plans that aren’t working, stick to routes that are obstructed, and obsess over relationships that aren’t fulfilling.
When you find yourself stuck in these kinds of patterns, trust that the big river of your life has a plan for you and let it carry you onward. Throw overboard those things that are weighing you down. Be open to revising your maps. Take a deep breath and move into the current.
